Eat Drink Design Talks

Australia’s only conference exploring hospitality design.

A companion to the 2019 Eat Drink Design Awards, the first Eat Drink Design Talks gathers hospitality designers and architects together with restaurateurs and operators to survey the state of the industry. During this half-day conference, delegates will hear from experts in hospitality and design as they present practical tips, insights and learnings, and also reflect on how Australia became a world leader in hospitality the design of restaurants, cafes, bars and hotels.

The speakers include keynotes from Esther Stam, founder of Amsterdam-based practice Studio Modijefsky, and from Timo Bures, general manager of the Tonkin Zulaikha Greer-designed The Old Clare Hotel. Also on the ticket are two sessions that will see designers in conversation with their clients: Léo Terrando of SJB (Melbourne) will speak with clients Antoine and Nathalie Reymond about Frédéric, while Graham Charbonneau of Studio Gram (Adelaide) will appear with Simon Kardachi to talk about Osterio Oggi and Shobosho.

The day will conclude with the “Takeaway” panel discussion, moderated by Dani Valent and featuring Timo Bures, Esther Stam, Simon Kardachi, Nathalie Reymond and Simon Lockrey.
